In The Mood - Online Card Class Release Blog Hop


Hi everyone
I am so excited to be joining as a guest in the hop to release the newest online card class,
In the Mood

Through mood board inspiration, our designers teach class participants many different ways that you can draw inspiration from the world around you. To celebrate the release of In the Mood we have created a special In the Mood blog hop. Each of our designers, and some of our friends, have created a card based on this mood board.

There are 10 FREE class registrations hidden along the hop, so make sure you leave comments along the way.  The more comments you make, the greater your chances are of winning!

You have until 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, June 21st to leave a comment to be entered to win! Winners will be announced Monday on Catherine's Blog.

Sign up by June 24th to get access to a BONUS mood board and two extra video tutorials.

Click here to learn more and to join now!

Here is the amazing mood board we were to be inspired by.


and my card...


My inspiration came from the beautiful butterfly.  I masked off a strip on my card base, sponged Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord Distress Inks onto the card base.  I removed the masking tape then stamped the butterfly and sentiment using Versafine Black ink.  Added a few sparkly clear sequins to finish it off.

You should have arrived here from Maureen's blog and your next stop on the hop is Heather North.

I hope to see you in class!
Happy Hopping!
